Default How many people still run the Losi 8ight 1.0 buggy??

I was just curious to see who all is still runnin the Losi 8ight 1.0 buggy and why you havent switched yet.
I know my daughter and I still run them. I have thought about getting a 2.0 chassis and switch everything over to it but, for now I see no need to. Shoot I'm still trying to figure this one out. LOL!!

Yea but but your still running the 1.0 chassis right? Except for the chassis and the rear center CVD, I don't think to much else is that different.

Only thing I see different in handling is the rear come around easier and and drives easier . I run the 2.0 buggy but still run 1.0 truggy .

I still do as well. I run lap times that are comparable to the pro times at our local track. The problem is not the buggy it's MY consistancy. I run 5-10 fast laps then a few bad laps, 5-10 fast laps then a few bad laps. You get the idea.

I'm still driving the 1.0 but I change the chassis and the rear center shaft and that's it. Drive like a charm , nimb in the ruff, good turn, well balance. No complaints. This will be my buggy till Losi came out with something newer than the 2.0, That should be very soon . About the trugy it is +4mm longer if i can recall from losi website.

I picked up two 1.0 rollers for really cheap, I already had a 2.0, so I converted the 2.0 to electric and used all the 2.0 nitro parts for one of the 1.0 rollers and I think that the only difference was that I was able to throw the rear around with way more control with the 2.0 than the 1.0, but I still like the way it drives. it definitely gets work done on the track tho. not that much different imo

I love my buggy I practice alot,But I win alot It's all about tires,set-up,maintance,practice against a clock.You will see that you will beat anybody anywhere that does not have the same work ethic's that you have.Instead of spending my money on buggys.I spend most of my money on tires and pistons & sleeves,and conrods
